Kraken, one of the largest cryptocurrency exchange in the world have announced that they are now supporting BitTorrent (BTT) trading on their platform.

BTT was one of the four newest tokens to be supported by Kraken and it is tradable against the USD and EUR on both Kraken and Kraken Pro apps.

What is BitTorrent?

BitTorrent is based in San Francisco and was founded on September 22, 2004, by Bram Cohen and Ashwin Navin. It is the largest decentralized P2P communications protocol for distributing data and large files over the Internet.

In 2018, BitTorrent was acquired by TRON Foundation and continued to provide support for their BitTorrent and uTorrent clients.

Last December 2021, BitTorrent announced that they were launching the first scalable heterogeneous cross-chain interoperability protocol called BitTorrent Chain and this has resulted in the BTT redenomination plan that led to the creation of the BTTC which was the new native token of the BitTorrent platform.

BitTorrent native token has been getting a lot of support lately from different digital asset exchanges/platforms and you’ll be seeing more of BTT being listed again in the next following weeks or months.
